This. If you have knowledge you want to pass on, make a blog, a website on something.
Posting on things we have to get an app, sign in, find et and scroll for ages, is ensuring this knowledge will not spread.
Even Twitter is part of the problem
@borderdoggo Can you post the link to the Twitter post (not as an answer to my toot, but to yours)? This way, people can read the source, and blind people can simply have access to the content. Or you can post the image description. Thanks!
@borderdoggo Also, Drew's post about why using Discord for FOSS projects is a bad idea
@borderdoggo ok so at sibr we are currently (shh this isn't super public knowledge yet) looking at developing a discord bot to take the sibr server and archive it and put it on a site (with anominization features and stuff ofc) for this exact reason. 99% of our community is in that discord so 99% of issues and solutions are also in there, unsearchable because discords search stuff is horrible
@borderdoggo Honestly this is something I’ve run into even on Fedi.
It’s not helped by Pleroma search (at least on the version installed on this instance) being total dogshit - I can’t even find my own posts when I want to reference them, so I’ve started putting thoughts in my blog again.
@borderdoggo Also, because hyperlinks are so, so important for finding things, a hyperlink to the post you shared a screenshot of: https://twitter.com/LukeCorreiaVA/status/1475220844456652802
@borderdoggo i try to make a habit of posting on dreamwidth instead of / in addition to here if i'm about to post something i figure i'll refer to again later
if only i could actually tell in advance
@borderdoggo yup. annoys the bejeesus out of me. a hobby i'm into is recently converting over from facebook as their primary mechanism of communication to discord. either platform isn't conducive and both require creating an account to go through the feeds.
